I used to drink in the Ship in the 60s - I think it sold Almond's bitter.

Looking at this lovely photo from the angle taken,I now know why I am so out of breath when I get to the history shop,after a hike up Standishgate and then over Millgate!

All the `posts` on the pavements in Wigan Town Centre must be `a minefield` to a blind person.


Comment by ken campbell on 15th July 2008 at 08:29
A very good photo.I thought It use to be called the Ship Inn.


Comment by Darren on 16th July 2008 at 08:58
What is the Heineken sign for?


Comment by Eric Turner on 26th July 2008 at 15:33
How did you get all the people to move out of the shot?


Comment by Art on 30th July 2008 at 00:57
Ship Inn?...Always the "Ship Hotel".
sometimes referred to as "The Yachting Station" by the local imbibers.
